How to Make Your Turkey Burgers Gobble-Worthy
In kitchens across the country, turkey burgers are being mistreated. Too often, we tend to view turkey burgers as merely a leaner version of a beef hamburger, and as a result, turkey burgers have a reputation for being dry and flavorless.
We’re here to set the record straight. As you can see from this easy turkey burger tutorial, turkey burgers are actually an entirely different bird (forgive the pun) from a regular hamburger. Although they share the “burger” name, turkey burgers actually inspire a different set of flavors, ingredients and sides than beef burgers do.
To prove that point, these recipes showcase the best of what turkey burgers have to offer with exciting flavors and unexpected pairings. For example, we’ve got a Asian-inspired Teriyaki Turkey Burger, or if you’re interested in something more decadent, a Mozzarella-Stuffed Turkey Burger that tastes like a pizza in a bun. You can even have Thanksgiving anytime of the year with the Turkey-Cranberry Burger. Whichever recipe you choose, we’re certain that it will prove once and for all just how flavorful and satisfying a turkey burger can be.
